A $100,000 ART PRIZE SUPPORTING CONTEMPORARY AUSTRALIAN ARTISTS UNDER 40.
Open to Australian artists under 40 working in any medium, the Ramsay Art Prize has redefined the way we think about art prizes.
Finalist works are selected by an eminent panel of judges and shown in a major exhibition at the Art Gallery of South Australia. The winning work is judged from the exhibition and is acquired into the Gallery’s collection with the winning artist receiving $100,000, thanks to the generosity of the James & Diana Ramsay Foundation.
In 2021, the Ramsay Art Prize judges are Wiradjuri artist Karla Dickens, Dr Daniel Mudie Cunningham, Director of Programs at Carriageworks and Rebecca Evans, Curator of Decorative Arts & Design at AGSA.
The exhibition also includes a People’s Choice Prize worth $15,000, supported by sponsor Lipman Karas, and decided by public vote.
Entries for the Ramsay Art Prize 2021 have closed. Finalists will be announced in April 2021 and the winner announced on Friday 21 May 2021. The exhibition will be held from 22 May to 22 August 2021.
